The Field Guide to CSO+ as a resource for use in any CSO community to empower decision makers charged with addressing CSOs alongside other priorities. It was created by re:focus partners and SCAPE as part of the BIG Initiative.

The Field Guide includes a discussion aid that city and utility staff can use to strategize with their elected officials about city and utility priorities, and outlines a set of tactics for pursuing relevant CSO+ projects and funding resources.

The Field Guide was released at a meeting of the CSO Permittee Network, an affinity group of Jersey Water Works.

Community priorities that can be tackled alongside CSOs include:

  • Public Housing
  • Economic (Re)Development
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Schools
  • Broadband & Internet Access
  • Watershed Protection
  • Parking
  • Streets
  • Public Health
  • Coastal Protection
